Steve Winder is a Professor of Molecular Cell Biology in the Department of Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield. Steve has a long-standing interest in DMD, having conducted research into the structure and functions of dystrophin, utrophin and dystroglycan for over 20 years.

More recently Steve’s research direction has taken a more translational approach, using both zebrafish and mouse models of DMD to find novel therapeutic approaches to treat DMD. This has involved taking both a repurposing strategy to investigate the efficacy of certain anti-cancer inhibitor drugs in DMD, and also using natural products derived from soy as potential therapies.

In his spare time Steve enjoys mountain biking in the Peak District, and the occasional Dash from London to Paris.
